I'm an epidemiologist (one of those) studying how changes in enviroment influence health outcomes over the life course. In the context of global health, I am interested in mitigating adverse effects of exposure to dual (or multi) burden of malnutrition on non-communicable disease development.

In my spare time, I enjoy bike touring and hiking as well as cooking and solving escape rooms.

I'll be updating this site over the next few months, so stay tuned!
